representative for jason wu. can you tell me about the gown? and tell me -- hi, it's alina cho from cnn. okay. she's sending me a description of the gown right now, but it is jason wu. this is -- anderson, i have to tell you, i'm shocked. this is remarkable. that four years later, she would choose jason wu again. she looked radiant in that red gown. i have been speaking, as you might imagine, to many designers about this. and what is interesting is actually when i was putting my piece together and talking about the process of selecting the gown, i, of course, naturally reached out to jason wu personally and to his representatives. and i was told in no uncertain terms that this time around, jason actually didn't want to speak about the process and what it has meant to him. and so i guess now we know why. it is an extraordinary decision on the first lady's part. a little surprising, i have to say, but as also, the first lady does look beautiful. and i have to say, as a woman who has bangs, i like the new haircut as well. >> you did interview jason recently. and my understanding is that the firs

wore a jason wu dress as she did four years ago? >> i was gobsmacked. she has a tendency to spread the love around. one of the things that is distinctive about her is that she hasn't settled in with one designer and become associated with one brand. what she did for him was really quite extraordinary. she elevated him from near anonymity into a household name. in some ways, i think it was a bit of a safer choice because there is so much pressure on an inaugural gown to be this extraordinarily symbolic dress. i think she felt comfortable going back to someone who had done right by her. >> earlier in the day she had worn a dress and a coat by thom browne and has probably changed the arc of his career. >> if i was gobsmacked by jason wu, i was stunned by browne. he really comes from the men's wear part of the business. the stuff that he puts on the runway is incredibly high concept. it is out there. >> fashion forward as they say. >> out there. >> out there. >> that's the technical term for it. the fact that she could, or her emissary could decipher that and find the real clothes in t

worn so far, it feels like it will be a bit more subdued from last time. >> that was a jason wu dress. >> it was the white jason wu dress. >> many designers people didn't know. do you think that's something she takes into account, that ability she has to give somebody a name? is she trying to spread the wealth a little bit to other designers? >> yeah. i think she's very smart in that she hasn't attached her name to one particular design house. and she has also, i think, recognized that the fashion industry is not just about the giant corporations. it's about small business owners. it's about female entrepreneurs. it's about young, immigrant entrepreneurs. and that really comes through on her choices. >> she does seem to try to do a mix of the everyday designers that any of us could have access to, and some of the higher end ones as well. >> absolutely. >> it's always good to have you here. thank you so much. >> my pleasure. >>> coming up next, small town letter that made a big impression on president obama. what he wrote back right after this. miss, this seat's available.
